Black Chronicles’ II Exhibition is produced by, and presented in association with, Autograph, London. It is a public showcase of Autograph’s commitment to critical enquiry into archive images which have been overlooked, under-researched or not recognised as significant, but are highly relevant to black representational politics and cultural history today. For the first time a comprehensive body of portraits depicting black people prior to the beginning of the second world war are brought together in this exhibition - identified through original research carried out in the holdings of national public archives and by examining privately owned collections. This research continues Autograph's search for the earliest photographic image of a black person created in the UK. The photographs in the exhibition were taken in photographic studios in Britain prior to 1938, with a majority during the latter half of the 19th century. This exhibition explores black presences in 19th and early 20th-century, through British studio portraiture. As a curated body of work, these photographs present new knowledge and offer different ways of seeing the black presence in Victorian Britain, and contribute to an ongoing process of redressing structural absence within the historical record.
